Chillpak Hollywood Hour #558

This week’s show begins with an update on how the fierce, determined and ridiculously cute cat Fuzz Aldrin is recovering (you can help with that recovery by visiting http://gofundme.com/save-fuzz-aldrin”). She had to have another emergency procedure this week, which leads to a rather hilarious story about Lily Holleman, “Junior Pet Detective”. It also leads to a conversation about a surgical procedure Dean Haglund will be undergoing the first week of February. Then, Dean and Phil Leirness discuss movies – two “classics” (the comedy To Be or Not to Be and the musical Brigadoon), and five recent releases (Darren Aronosky’s Mother!, Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories, Dan Gilroy’s Roman J. Israel, Esq., Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water and the big winner at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, MIssouri).

For the first time in weeks, your friends in podcasting tackle “Celebrity Deaths”, celebrating the life and careers of record producer Rick Hall, actress-singer Rose Marie and film noir icon Peggy Cummins. Then, they tackle the “small screen”, with Phil weighing in on the new Fox sitcom “LA to Vegas”, with Dean assessing the most recent “mirror universe” episode of “Star Trek: Discover” (“The Wolf Inside”), and the two of them discussing the thematic meanings of Season 11 of “The X-Files”, of the most recent episode (“Plus One”) and what the future might hold for the show with or without Gillian Anderson.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #196

It’s Dean and Phil’s last show ever on the Farpoint Media Network. At some point this week, the switch over to a new server will be taking place and even your friends in Podcasting have no concrete knowledge of how this will affect their “back catalogue” of shows or their iTunes subscribers. What we do know is this: The newest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour rocks! It begins with a touching look back at the history of the show and it’s humble origins. That segues into a forthright, honest discussion about the economic realities facing show sponsor Chillpak and in a larger sense about the nature and makeup of the entire economy … The usual topics are also touched on, of course, from the latest film and television news to feedback from you (yes, you), Dean and Phil’s partners in podcasting crime, who wrote in response to topics covered over the past few weeks. Enjoy, and know that one thing will never change: Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will be bringing you a free hour of weekly podcasting goodness as long as they are able!

And just in case you think this show won’t be entertaining, Sean Connery drops by at the end to share in the laughs …. This week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
